  • Do You Know What You Need to Know? 
    A Substance Abuse Awareness Program for Parents
    Presented by State Representative Tom Calter and Sponsored by Kingston Collection
    Tuesday, October 28, 2014
    7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
    Middleboro High School Auditorium
    You may think you know what to warn your kids about when it comes to drugs and alcohol, but there are startling new trends and methods of substance abuse making their way through teen social circles. From household products and strong prescription meds to dangerous use of alcohol and street drugs including heroin, this eye-opening information will inform, and likely surprise, you.
    Get up to speed on the issues and trends… learn the warning signs, health consequences, tips for communicating with your child, strategies for intervention and more.  This 2-hour program is time very well-spent -- don’t miss this powerful panel presentation designed to keep our children safe. Panelists include the Regional Director of Student Assistance from Caron Treatment Centers, members of the Middleboro Police Department, and Middleboro’s trained School Resource Officer.  The program will be hosted and moderated by Rep. Tom Calter and will conclude with a Q&A session.
    All parents and adults who interact with kids of any age are encouraged to attend. No registration is required to attend.  NOTE: This program is not meant for youth attendance. Candid dialogue among adults is important in addressing these issues. For more information, please contact Amy Belmore at abbelmore@hotmail.com or 617-908-4653.
